Screening of two Jazz Film Documentary feature films in competition at this years Copenhagen Jazz Film Festival: ’PLAYING LECUONA’ (91min). + 'JAZZ NIGHTS' (104)
PLAYING LECUONA is a journey through the work and living spaces of pianist and composer Ernesto Lecuona, considered the most universal of Latin Ameica pianists. Three outstanding Latin Jazz piano players will guide us in this odyssey: CHUCHO VALDES in Lecuona’s native Havana fuses jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms, MICHEL CAMILO in New York, creates elegant soundscapes, in Seville, GONZALO RUBALCABA, the heart or Andalucia, fuses Latin Jazz with Flamenco.
JAZZ NIGHTS chronicles a deeply creative and intimate 2 year residency undertaken by a group of Los Angeles’ top jazz musicians who performed in secret at an illegal hash-bar hidden in the heart of Hollywood.
